    Sounds delicious! A nice twist on salmon that isn't too complicated. Going to make this some some time this week. Thank you!

    This was so delicious!!! The creamy cilantro cheese matched so well with the salmon. I baked it though as I dont have an indoor grill. Near the end of the cooking i brushed the salmon w/ a bit of garlic butter and then sprinkled fresh chiffonade cilantro on top before serving. It was so yummy!

    This is a new fave. I'm gonna make it again this weekend for when my Mom comes over for supper. :)

    GREAT RECIPE! love love love it.

    Made this tonight: yummers! I'm not a cilantro fan at all, but it's delicate in this cream cheese sauce. Made it with trout and used low fat cream cheese. Thanks for posting this one!

    The kosher salt you sprinkle on while cooking is the jewels :)

    We made this last night. YUM! We will definitely be making this one again, simple yet yummy.

    I did have one difference, rather than a thick fillet I had some thinner but wide fillets that I sliced about 2/3 of the way through down the middle so I could fold them over. Might be a bit easier than actually butterflying a thick fillet especially if you don't have a very sharp knife. It held together just fine all through the grilling. Because it was a bit thicker I had to grill more like 9 or 10 minutes on each side. It came out perfect though. Quite possible the best I've ever done grilling fish :) I uploaded a picture as this recipe didn't have one yet (and I was quite proud of it).
